@aimlessThis! I think quite a few us actually enjoy our work. I love being on the frontier of brain science and am certainly not doing pursuing my career for the pursuit of money. Though like Aimless, I try to make wise investments on growing my portfolio and save a lot (ie for those that don't know students are paid to attend graduate school in the sciences). Eventually I hope to have something that can supplement my preferred profession and I don't end up financially penalized. I guess we'll see, but it's looking good so far. :)
maybe a little more diplomatic, thus:
"waste of time" = "not for me"
I was part of a drug discovery team that will have a treatment for melanoma on the market this year. That's pretty special. It's what I like to do. Not a waste of time.
But that might not be what you want to do. And that's fine as well. To each their own...
